This tour is a mini wildlife safari off of the A1A Scenic Byway in southern Florida. The tour focuses on Florida's ecological habitat and the many different animals you may see on your visit.

Bird Island Park is in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. It is north of Guana River State Park and St. Augustine beach. The Park is adjacent to the Ponte Vedra Beach Library. Bird Island is the first park travelers will encounter when heading south along the A1A Scenic Byway.
